When logic, plan and conditions indicate that you should act but you don't feel this action do you act?


But when it feels like it is inspirational action, the chain of events, the repeating of names and events that you must act but yet your feelings say NO, and due to the repeating indications from universe you act but as your feelings are not there the results wouldn't come as the expectations or there are no results at all.

Do you think that it was really inspirational actions but negative feelings ruin their consequences?

Then when I should depend on my feelings and when not?

Isn't feeling good accompanied with inspirational actions and isn't feeling right create the inspiration in acting, thinking and so on??

An example: I was working on a business deal and I got a visit from a customer who match this field of business but I didn't feel that this person could be cooperative but as I was thinking of customer and he appeared I talked with him about my deal, he said I will reply back, and he didn't as I didn't feel his cooperation. Two days after I was asked about a contract which again linked me to that old same guy, so I thought maybe this is the person universe is delivered me to my old deal and yet I didn't call him, I said I will call him, and when I did all the time his number was busy and I stopped ringing.

Are my feelings which are creating this person or another to be non cooperative (I created the busy number) as it seems to me that I am repeating my self in this deal, even I am still feeling that this guy is not cooperative :) or should I create the non cooperative to be cooperative?

Or should I quit thinking, deciding this time as I am nervous somehow and let the universe to do his work as I am really thinking of distract myself a little bit, Abraham plan.

Another question how can I balance between distraction and affirmations which I like doing so much.

You might be overthinking this a bit.

When you don't know what action to take but you feel like you want to take some action, then just take any action whether it's inspired or not.

Holding yourself in a state of indecision because you fear doing the wrong thing is far worse for you than actually doing the wrong thing :)

So, in that case, any decision is a good decision...which implies that any action is a good action.

The reason for this is that once you have made a definite decision, you've started an energy flow through yourself which has momentum. Making a decision starts the life-force energy pulsing through you, and that energy flow will enable you to sense a definite feeling regarding the decision you have made i.e. the action you have just started taking.

Now once you have a definite feeling going about the action you are taking, it now makes it easier to decide whether the action you are taking is the best-feeling action at this moment or whether another one feels better.

If another one starts to feels better than the one you are currently doing, do that one instead until you eventually feel that yet another different action is the best one to do, because it feels better.

I hope you can see that by adopting this approach, you are using each action to propel you towards an even-better-feeling action and then an even-better-feeling action and then an even-better-feeling action...and so on.

Eventually this series of, perhaps seemingly-random, actions will have propelled you into a state of inspiration where you can clearly feel that each succeeding action is truly inspired.

But notice that the action you may have originally started doing may not be the one that this chain of actions eventually leads you into doing. Using this approach, the actual actions themselves are secondary - it is the feeling state that doing each action elevates you towards that is important.

So, to sum up, when in doubt choose any action and that decision to act will start a chain of events that will lead to a positive outcome, if you keep choosing the next best-feeling action to do in any moment.

To give you another perspective on this action-based approach, here is one of my favorite Bashar quotes...

At any given moment, you look at all the things available to you that are available to you to act on.

Choose the one that contains the highest amount of excitement that you are capable of taking the greatest amount of action on in that moment.

If, at that moment, two things seems equally exciting as options, choose the one that you have the greatest degree of ability to take action on at that moment.

That's it. That's how you choose....

  1. Always choose the thing that excites you the most

  2. Always choose the thing that excites you the most that you have the greatest actual physical degree of ability to take action on.

  3. Take it as far as you can. When you can take it no further, stop, look at all the things that are available to you, choose the one that is most exciting, that you have the greatest ability to take action on. In the next moment do the same, in the next moment do the same, in the next moment do the same.

You will rarely, rarely, find two things of equal excitement or rarely find things of equal excitement that have the same degree of ability to be acted on OR, if you do, it doesn't matter which one you choose. And if you go with one and it's not the one that serves you best, if you go in with the attitude that you will always make the best choice for you, then having chosen that one will always lead you back around to the other choice.

This is what you need to understand. Following your excitement is not only the driving engine of your reality, it's also the automatic organizing principle. You don't need to know the 'How' of the details. You just need to act on your excitement.

Physical Mind is not designed to understand how things happen. Physical mind is only designed to perceive how things happened, not how things are going to happen. Higher Self does that for you.

All you need to do is act on the opportunities that contain the highest degree of excitement that you have the highest degree of capability of acting on.

Higher Self tells you that if you do that, everything you need will be there. The 'How' will be there. You don't have to think about it because you are not designed to think about it.

@Stingray....agree with @Dollar Bill, amazing stuff. Why oh why we feel the genuine things need to be complicated when they could be or rather they are really simple:) Thanks for sharing and the reminder:)

what is been happening is while I am through my meditation, exercises I am full of excitement while when I should act my higher mind turn to be physical, unconsciously judgment analyzing start which I deal with by going back to my mediation room. This cycle of invoking feelings between up and down which waste time too and I don’t mind that sometimes cut my connect with source for a while and I feel empty

I don’t demanding things to be that ease or that fast; I am enjoying the process and how it will come even the time it will take, just want to keep that link of my source in every moment, when I am expecting results excitement vanishes, Bashar says manifestation is zero expectation

"If a man told God that he wanted most of all to help the suffering world, no matter the price to himself, and God answered and told him what he must do, should the man do as he is told?"

"Of course, Master!" cried the many. "It should be pleasure for him to suffer the tortures of hell itself, should God ask it!"

"No matter what those tortures, no matter how difficult the task?"

"Honor to be hanged, glory to be nailed to a tree and burned, if so be that God has asked," said they.

"And what would you do," the Master said unto the multitude, "if God spoke directly to your face and said, 'I COMMAND THAT YOU BE HAPPY IN THE WORLD, AS LONG AS YOU LIVE.' What would you do then?"

And the multitude was silent, not a voice, not a sound was heard upon the hillsides, > > >across the valleys where they stood."

--------------- Richard Bach, "Illusions"

This Teaching is very simple. Follow your Joy. Move in the direction of your greatest Excitement/Joy/Happiness.

Do what you feel good about, not what you "ought to do."

As you begin to consciously overlay this beief pattern, you will see a whole new world unfolding. AND you will also realize that the ALL joys, the true joys, the joyful manifestations have ALL come because you did this in your past.

We have all been following this Teaching all our lives, we are becoming more effective as we allow it into conscious awareness and replace dysfunctional belief systems.

Joy is the key I agree too and I test it already. Only joy and feeling good can make things work. You are right. I am in a cycle of other people who distract a little bit when all they demand is physical results. It is a little distraction anyway!
